The Essential Guide To Decorating Classic Christmas Cookies

With two beloved recipes, Classic Sugar Cookies & Buttermilk Gingerbread Cookies, anything is possible. These timeless rolled cookie favorites or even your own family heirloom cookie formulas such as Moravian Snowflakes are all that is needed to create lasting memories for years to come during the holidays. Over the next several weeks, drop in daily for tips & techniques that may be used to decorate Christmas cookies in many different ways. Some are quite simple while others will feature professional products if you’re interested in taking your styling skills to the next level. I will also suggest packaging options so the baked goods may be shared with friends, teachers or anyone on your special gift list plus pointers for displaying them around your home. While I have chosen to feature classic colors & shapes, just know that these techniques may be applied to anything you so choose. When I begin cookie projects, I prefer to bake everything one day & decorate another. Baked cookies may be stacked & frozen in airtight containers up to one month. Simply thaw them on the kitchen countertop when you & your family are ready to create a bit of magic.

Variety is essential when making cookies at Christmastime. Be certain these classics make the cut for a pleasing aesthetic & exceptional good taste.

The Cookies

The beauty of Classic Butter Spritz is that all sorts of holiday shapes may be created using one simple dough. Spritz cookies are some of the most traditional holiday cookie favorites in Scandinavian countries & once you get comfortable using the press, the possibilities are limitless. Sandwich two together with jam or chocolate ganache, sprinkle the tops of the pressed dough with nuts & sugar or fill the centers as you so please.

Cinnamon-Pecan Rugelach is classified as a rolled cookie more so due to the first shaping & cutting of the dough. The second step gives these classic old world cookies their signature look. 

Flourless Chocolate-Hazelnut Cookies offer rich flavor & make a wonderful accompaniment to additional Christmas cookie favorites. They are classified as drop cookies as all that is necessary is dropping the dough onto baking sheets once it has been blended.

Kipferls are Austrian cookies from Vienna shaped to represent the crescent on the Turkish flag. They are most often prepared with ground almonds however many nuts such as pecans & walnuts may be substituted in basic formulas to yield equally delicious results. Vanille Kipferl are one of the most popular flavors to bake & make lovely additions to cookie platters as their shape is so distinctive.

Chocolate-Pecan Rugelach showcases a swirl design when sliced which offers lovely interest to holiday cookie gifts & entertaining menus. A simple blend of chocolate, sugar & ground pecans makes an effortless filling & adds a striking contrast to the dough.

Moravian Snowflakes may be prepared by using a traditional Buttermilk Moravian Cookie dough formula. This old world classic results in paper-thin, spice-scented cookies that bake crisp. Although a fluted, round cutter is how they were originally hand crafted, a snowflake shape makes the most beautiful holiday cookies.

Chocolate-Hazelnut Icebox Cookies offer exceptional taste to Christmas menus. Blend the dough, shape into logs & bake them when they are needed. The straightforward technique of replacing a bit of flour with cocoa powder makes them a cinch to prepare.

A simple recipe of Classic Butter Spritz may also be used to prepare Chocolate Blossom Spritz. Chocolate ganache fills the cookie centers for a lovely look that provides good taste & the perfect addition offering interest to a collection of Christmas cookies when entertaining or for gift giving.

Pecan Spritz are quite simple to prepare once a batch of Classic Butter Spritz cookie dough has been made. Pulse the nuts in the food processor several times until they are finely ground, then sprinkle them over the pressed dough just before baking. 

Moravian Cookies are an old fashioned holiday classic brought to our country by religious immigrants from central Europe. Many American communities that were settled by Moravians, in places such as North Carolina, are known for offering them during Christmas festivities.
